More About the Author

Dorothy Edwards is most famous for My Naughty Little Sister which she dreamt up to keep her daughter quiet whilst on a family holiday in 1950. Dorothy based the character on her younger sister, Phyllis, and went on to write five books about her naughty little sister with wide acclaim.

Dorothy Violet Ellen Brown was born into a working-class family in Teddington on 6th November 1914. When her father returned from fighting in the First World War he threw his energies into teaching his daughter to read. Dorothy wrote her first story when she was four years old, which she since described as "exciting, horrifying and very misspelt".

With published poetry, short stories and articles throughout her twenties, Dorothy's attention turned towards children's books after she had two children of her own by her husband, Frank Edwards. Her daughter, Jane, tirelessly asked her mum to tell her stories, and it was only a matter of time before Dorothy wrote them down and they became timeless children's classics.


My Naughty Little Sister really found its home in Shirley Hughes' wonderful illustrations. Dorothy delighted in visiting schools and meeting children, her warmth and obvious enthusiasm held audiences spellbound. Her ability to make stories up on the spot, tailoring them to the kids in front of her, gave her a charm like no other.

Dorothy became a household name and her stories were read and loved across the globe. She became a fixture of a radio show in the 1950s called Read with Mother and she also wrote for Playschool and Jackanory.

Dorothy died in 1982 and was buried next to her sister. Her memory lives on as "an active champion of the cause of children's reading."
